LOS ANGELES — Oak Ridge native Tee Higgins is ready to represent his hometown in the Super Bowl on Sunday.
"I think it would mean a lot for the city back home and hopefully I can get it done," the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver said in a press conference on Friday afternoon about bringing a title back to this area.
Higgins has over 1,000 yards receiving and six touchdowns on the season as he has played a big part in his team's success.
The wideout won back-to-back Mr. Football awards at Oak Ridge High School before playing college football at Clemson. He won a national title in his second year there and now will try to win a Super Bowl in his second year as a pro.
Higgins will try to win it all on Sunday with the Bengals against the Los Angeles Rams. The kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. and the game can be watched on WBIR.
